Winemaker Notes

This big, spicy, robust, somewhat jammy wine represents exceptional value.

It is an excellent match for grilled ribs, sausages, and steaks as well as roasts and stews of lamb, beef and game.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From one of my favorite estates, the 2013 Vacqueyras Cuvee Classique shows the vintage’s more focused and straight style. It is pretty and complex, with notes of Provencal, garrigue, sappy flowers, peppery spice and pretty berry fruit. The wine is made from 55% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre and 15% Mourvedre. Drink this medium-bodied, delicious and easy drinking Vacqueyras on release and over the following 5-7 years.
Range: 87-89

Domaine le Couroulu, France
Domaine le Couroulu Winery Image
Located in between Gigondas and Chateauneuf du Pape, the village of Vacqueyras was finally granted its own AC in 1990 after vociferous lobbying. Domaine Le Couroulu, founded in 1928 and still owned by the Ricard family, is known for producing some of the most full-bodied Vacqueyras and other wines from their 20 hectares of old Grenache and Syrah vines.

The estate is named for the Curlew bird, which is known in Provencal dialect as Couroulu: this bird is the signature emblem on the Domaine’s labels. Winemaker Guy Ricard, who represents the third generation, is one of the Rhone’s most passionate and pleasant personalities, qualities which are reflected in his generous and engaging wines.

Vacqueyras Wine

Rhone, France

This charming appellation within the Côtes du Rhône Villages was second only to Gigondas to earn its own village appellation status. Its wines may be red, rosé or white—though hardly any is white. Its high winemaking standards follow many of the same rules as Chateauneuf-du-Pape. But for Vacqueyras red wines, half of the grapes have to be Grenache and the remainder is usually a combination of Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault.

While they can be robust and rustic in style, typically a great Vacqueyras red combines delicate aromas with intense fruit and a bright, crisp texture. They certainly don’t lack any character and show an abundance of black cherry, wild berry, plum, fig, baking spice, and a touch of game or smoke.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
